Living in exile with her mother, Nissa a half human half fae, trains with the hope to one day become a hunter. When she goes into her first sexual heat six years too soon, she is kidnapped and sold to the highest bidder at the slave auction. Unwilling to give up her freedom for slavery, even if it is to two rugged and virile hunters, she takes desperate steps to escape.
She should have known she couldn’t outrun the inevitable.
Roane and Erik have shared everything in life and plan for Nissa to be no exception. The steely innocence they recognize in her matches up to everything they’ve been looking for. Purchasing her at auction should have sealed the deal, but neither of them bargained on her ruthless determination or the secret she harbored.
Forced to face her weakness, Nissa agrees to a bargain. Seven days and nights of total submission, no questions asked and freedom is hers. Nissa is certain in the end she will want to leave and Roane and Erik are certain she won't.
“I’d wish you good luck with this little hellion, but if any of the Fae can tame her it’ll be you two.”
This is what the slave trader tells Eric and Roane as they buy Nissa. Nissa has gone into “heat” early, been kidnapped by her cousin, and sold into slavery. Enchanted by her, Fae hunters Eric and Roane buy her. But before they can claim her, Nissa runs away. When they finally meet up with her, Eric and Roane propose a bargain, stay with them as their submissive for seven days and then she can choose to leave if she wants. As you can guess, they fall in love. But when they do, a surprising climax threatens their happiness.
When Nissa, Eric, and Roane have sex; it’s mouthwatering. The sex is utterly stimulating. I felt hot and flushed reading Slave to Passion. The sex scenes were both M/M/F and M/M. And although I don’t normally read M/M, I found it really hot. Their journey was great to watch. I loved that, when the book hit its climax, Nissa didn’t sit and wait to be saved by her men.
Roane is the absolute dominant in their relationship. He’s strong and sexy beyond words. Eric is interesting; he submits to Roane but also dominates Nissa. Nissa is submissive to them both. Their dynamic is simply fascinating. What was different is that although the book alluded to spanking scenes there was never really any in depth spanking scene. Nissa’s secret desire is different, and I loved how Roane and Eric grew to accept and support her dream.
This book isn’t a five because I was confused at first about the Fae world. As the third in Ms. Gayle’s The Taken series, I felt like I was missing key details from previous books. I think Slave to Pleasure would have definitely benefitted from a prologue.
If you’re looking for a hot paranormal ménage relationship, Slave to Pleasure is not to be missed. I really enjoyed this book, and will look for more of Ms. Gayle’s titles.
